Choral Evensong at Salisbury Cathedral

Friday 17th March 2017

Our Consort choir had the privilege of singing a Choral Evensong at Salisbury cathedral this week.

This magnificent 13th century cathedral built in the early gothic style, could be seen from afar as we approached the town, with its spire that is the highest in the country and still stands as a central and most visible witness after so many centuries of it being a significant centre of the community, Christian worship and the place of pilgrimage for many from around the world.

The Consort rehearsed with Mr Padley from 3.45pm for an hour and the Evensong started at 5.30pm.

The readings and music for the liturgy were for the season of Lent. The beautiful voices of our wonderfully accomplished Consort singers filled the whole building with the creative expressions of worship and presence of God through the music of William Todd’s deeply moving Call of Wisdom, Malcolm Archer’s Berkshire Service and closed with Herbert Howells’ superb organ piece Master Tallis’s Testament beautifully played by Ben Giddens.

The response from all the clergy, visitors and parents was, as always, most appreciative and complimentary. The perfect day ended with pizza in Salisbury!

Many thanks to all for blessing Salisbury and all of us there that afternoon and well done for such a brilliant performance that represented yet again the quality of life and music in our school.
